Where Media Bias Tilts On Education Reform

, Malcolm A. Kline, Leave a comment

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) proves that media bias leans towards Democratic Party education reforms rather than Republican ones and they’ve proved it scientifically, or at least social scientifically. “The mainstream media was strikingly more skeptical of Republican education proposals than of Democratic proposals,” Rick Hess and Brendan Bell write on the AEI website. “The education-specific media maintained greater impartiality.”

“In 2017–18, mainstream media coverage of Republican-led education proposals displayed a negative lean in 45 percent of stories. In 2009, mainstream media coverage of Democratic proposals leaned negative in less than 5 percent of stories.”

“Education-specific media coverage displayed more consistency across years, as 25 percent of 2017–18 articles leaned against Republican proposals, while about 13 percent of 2009 pieces were critical of Democratic proposals.”
